Waiting on Wednesday (121)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on The Trouble With Destiny by Lauren Morrill (2015).

Description on Goodreads:
It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. . . .

With her trusty baton and six insanely organized clipboards, drum major Liza Sanders is about to take Destiny by storm—the boat, that is. When Liza discovered that her beloved band was losing funding, she found Destiny, a luxury cruise ship complete with pools, midnight chocolate buffets, and a $25,000 spring break talent show prize.

Liza can’t imagine senior year without the band, and nothing will distract her from achieving victory. She’s therefore not interested when her old camp crush, Lenny, shows up on board, looking shockingly hipster-hot. And she’s especially not interested in Russ, the probably-as-dumb-as-he-is-cute prankster jock whose ex, Demi, happens be Liza’s ex–best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that’s the band’s greatest competition.

But it’s not going to be smooth sailing. After the Destiny breaks down, all of Liza’s best-laid plans start to go awry. Liza likes to think of herself as an expert at almost everything, but when it comes to love, she’s about to find herself lost at sea.
Why I’m Waiting:
I’ve been a fan of this author since Meant to Be. She writes the kind of fun, adorable YA contemporaries that I find myself sometimes craving like chocolate. I know the main character will learn a thing or two by the end of the book. Her books all have a great coming of age vibe going for them. I know the romance will be great. And I know I won’t be able to put it down. I also love the cover. And I’m sensing that the ship might break down…I love a good survival story too.
